Short Story Review- Howdy, Winnie, & the Bombshell by Nate Dean

I stumbled upon this short FREE (yes free) story written by Nate Dean on Smashwords. What attracted me to the story beyond the wonderful price tag is the cover art. Also it has an interesting background story to it. Nate submitted it to NPR for a writing contest they were doing. Unfortunately, it was rejected. This is very short read so it goes really quickly. It is filled with lots of humor and had me giggling at a number of place. Very clever! The ending was a bit confusing and took a second reading for me to get it. But I didn't mind considering that the first reading took less than 5 minutes. I give this 4 out of 5. I would love to see more works by him and he has a novel on smashwords for $3.99 called A Fairy Tale.  If it has even half of the humor that is pack in his short story then it will be a good read. Check out the cool cover art for his book!
